Remix Vocal Academy

Tim recently got into the Remix Vocal Academy at BYU in Provo, Utah!
 He spent a week up there learning so much about acapella music and voice. 
At the end of the week, they had a performance. 
I was unable to fly up to see it (tommy went) so I am so glad it was posted on youtube! (link below)

The highlight of his week - meeting youth speaker Hank Smith - Tim's spiritual Hero!

He earned a few solo spots - watch the whole video - he starts the song sounding a little nervous - which is strange for him - but he kills it in the rest! He can't wait to try to get in again next summer!

 Maggie has been gone for all of Steph's pregnancy and she missed Ethans birth by just a couple of weeks - so she was determined to be with Steph when she delivered Emmitt.

Spiritual Summer!

This summer, Tim attended EFY in San Antonio with his buddy Jeremy, and also went to Nauvoo, Illinois on a church history trip with the youth from our stake.  He loved both! He didn't take any photos for me - but I grabbed these off of a friends fb from the Nauvoo trip.

are those meatballs in a cup? Eww

Then EFY...

Just about the only photo I was sent during EFY
This is a link to a video his EFY group did - some sort of quick video challenge. Their theme was modesty. Tim is singing the first verse.
